the potential added value of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) for investigation purposes (full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a technology based on cameras to automatically scan number plates and to compare these with one or more reference-databases. Reference-databases contain lists of number plates with which something is wrong: for instance an unpaid fine, a stolen vehicle or a revoked license. At the time of writing, the Dutch police employs 90 mobile and 120 fixed ANPR-cameras.
